Relaxed Chevron Throw - Dot & Bo Review

Disclosure: The author of this blog was NOT financially compensated to write this review. Opinions expressed is solely my own and may differ from others. The product/s being described in this review was provided for FREE for evaluation purposes.

During the Thanksgiving break, hubby and I have been busy at home.  I put him to work with the new  curtain rods that we snagged on sale.  

 We bought the oil-rubbed bronze decorative rod set by Kirsch.  It was originally priced at $22 but we got it for $5.99, the day after the Black Friday  sale.
For the past couple of days, I have been working on some projects, HAND-SEWN throw pillow cases.  It's funny that I have three  electric sewing machine here but none of them seem to work so I just sewn them with my hands.  
 Our throw pillows  have  the same  color as the love seat and couch when we bought them.  So I thought of adding some colors to our living room.  I found these beautiful fabrics at one of our old sewing machine cabinet so I made them into pillow cases.  
BLUE by the way is the family's favorite color! ABC Wednesday
I thought the pattern of this light blue printed  fabric goes really good with our painting on the wall.   
I also bought two mink throws on sale to keep us warm when we watch our favorite shows on TV.

I LOVE the new addition, another splash of color to our living room, the Relaxed Chevron Throw   that Dot & Bo sent me for review.  You can buy this on sale for $49.99 with a 40% discount from the original price of $83.
This throw gives you a bold pallete of color without sacrificing the cozy feeling.  I love that it somehow ties with  the color of our couch and love seat.  This is  made from 100% cotton from India so it is so soft and very cozy  for snuggling.
Just look at this  little lady of mine who is always feeling cold.  She just love this  soft throw.
 Even our dog, Bolt wanted to snuggle in it too but he isn't allowed lol.  Sorry buddy, this isn't for you but  I might buy you a new cushion if you behave hehehe.
Now my living room doesn't look so dark anymore because of the new splashes of color that I added.  It's not the best living room  set up you'll ever see but it's good enough for us to stay warm on this freezing  weather.  Interior decorating is not my cup of tea but I  try my best to make our home a bit presentable.  
Thanks a lot Dot & Bo for the beautiful Christmas present!  If you are looking for  unique home decor and products, Dot & Bo is the place to go.  I love everything that they have!
As I have said, I am no expert when it comes to decorating so rearranging is frequent.  Any  expertise that you may have in decorating or how to properly put stuff  is quite welcome through the comment.

OK I have no idea when it comes to decorating either. I usually buy magazines and use their ideas for inspiration. You did a great job decorating though.
